Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi, Masdar and Solar Impulse share a pioneering spirit, a long-term vision and a desire to explore new horizons. 

Abu Dhabi is a natural partner to be the host city, as Solar Impulse 2 embarks on its historic journey around the world. The city is exploring new horizons and has shared a commitment to foster the development of new technologies that contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable future. 

Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy company and host partner of Solar Impulse, is a natural partner for this epic technological feat. Both Solar Impulse and Masdar are committed to advancing clean technology and encouraging innovation to ensure a sustainable, cleaner future. 

Masdar is a leader in developing some of the most sophisticated renewable energy projects in the world. It’s only fitting that Masdar host such a bold and daring initiative that demonstrates how technology and a pioneering spirit can change the world. 

With innovation, sustainability, and leveraging human capital as cornerstones of the United Arab Emirates’ economic development plans, initiatives like Masdar were established and have enabled Abu Dhabi to evolve into a global hub for clean technology, renewable energy, and sustainable development. As a global symbol for its commitment to a sustainable, diversified energy mix, Abu Dhabi stands out as the best and most suitable departure point for the Round-The-World Tour.
